SOME RECENT FINISHES




I finished Shepherd's Shade punchneedle.  It was done with 6 strands of DMC floss.  So, it came together quickly and inexpensively.



I made this heart pillow from felted wool for Corinne for her 19th Birthday.  It's filled with wool roving and lavender buds.  Lavender buds are a natural repellent to moths that eat wool.  So...being in Chicago...she can put this in her hat, scarf and sock drawer.


Then Signs of Spring punchneedle done with Valdani floss.  Way too cute on the top of a box that I painted and waxed.  Both my sisters, Joan and Cathy, have done this one too.  I know because I've seen them!!  Just need to buy some M&M Easter Peanut candies.

Cari, they are all beautiful finishes! I especially like the Shepherd's Shade punchneedle. I haven't tried punchneedle before but it is something I would like to do in the future.

Wow! I love all your finishes! I'm another who is intrigued by punchneedle -- love what you've done with the technique! And that little sachet pillow -- gorgeous!

Those are all so sweet! I love them! Of course, you've been one busy bee! Waxing that little box is a great idea! Way to go Cari!

Sorry I deleted... I wish we could just edit our own posts... anyways, I also did Signs of Spring... Don't you just love her patterns? I was going to do the box too but framed it instead. Needlepunch is great fun!
I love your finishes.
